A race to the finish

It is amazing how quickly 12 weeks goes, and how quickly good intentions also vanish.  Three months ago I signed up to do a 5.7km run as part of the Melbourne Marathon being held tomorrow.

bought with the best of intentions


My training regime has consisted of buying new running shoes, a string of late nights, drinking white wine instead of going for planned runs (it was raining), sleeping in instead of going for planned runs (it was cold & dark), and have only started a few cursory 2.5km walk/jog/shuffle combos in the last 3 weeks.

Thus you can imagine I am somewhat anxious about tomorrow’s event.  Still, I reckon I can manage it that I’ll have enough energy to run victorious into the MCG (before they close the gates!)

Live in Melbourne born in Adelaide, and thus love Cooper's Pale Ale, Haigh's chocolates and a good Mclaren Vale shiraz. But am now also addicted to 'good' coffee, wearing black, and footy at the MCG

  1. Hey Julie,
    Very entertaining and validating blogs, I can relate to nearly everything you write about.
